It begins with the leadership of the prophet Samuel, the last of the pre-monarchic rulers of Israel, and continues with the narratives of King Saul and King David. This source begins with the divinely appointed birth of Samuel. This text is one of the most important messianic prophecies in the Old Testament.

    The Hebrew term "messiah" Greek - Christos means "anointed one". The books were probably written soon after the end of his reign. Two episodes in the conflict between the House of Saul and the House of David highlight the tension between morality and expediency: 1 During the pursuit, David caught Saul unawares in a cave, and cut off the corner of his cloak instead of killing him I Samuel Frequent gaps are met with in the record, because their object is to present a history of the kingdom of God in its gradual development, and not of the events of the reigns of the successive rulers. With the help of thirty thousand Israelites, David brings the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem in an elaborate procession.
